My Protective Dog



When this photo of my beloved horse dog came up on my Facebook memories from 2010.....I was reminded of when I was trying to find Donnie a good home back in 2010! 

I am glad it was my good home I found. I was feeling so stressed and felt I can't handle a big dog in the house....little did I know.  

It did get worse that year when hubs was laid off from his job!. 

Thankfully he did get a job after 8 months finally!  However it was a night shift job for 3 years.....It was comforting that I had my big horse dog in the house!  

My Donny has protected me in ways I will never know.....

The most memorable time was when a water moccasin snake was coming toward me as my wheelchair was stuck by the fence.....he bit the snake in half when the snake got 2 feet from me!!  And to think I was trying to find Donny another home!

Try to Remember when life gets so hard...... just hang on......we can't see the big picture!

Hi Kim - great share about your dear friend Donny - great dog and amazing protector. Our Gracie-Blue is part of our family - our pack :-) She is always right by me and such a comfort. She had a bit of a hard time with this big move to Western NY - we all did! But we are finding our rhythm and balance and feeling we are "home".
Love Gail
peace.....

Birdie has left a new comment on your post "My Protective Dog":

A water moccasin? I think I would have fainted or peed my pants. Donnie deserves one of those dog hero award!

ps. I somehow deleted Birdie's comment but copied it above???

Your dog has proved to be your best friend and protector. He was right there for you when the snake appeared and put you in danger. He deserves special treatment and great affection.

Sounds like a good dog...and good company too!
The snake on the other hand--not so much.

So glad you have that crazy 'horse' dog to protect you... If and when I ever get a dog again, it will be a BIG dog... I don't EVER want a tiny little yappy dog... ha ha

You are a lucky lady... Give the pup an extra treat today!

Hugs,
Betsy
